The History of Punk Playlist #52 & Craig Martell Interview!

2015/11/24

“The ethics that come from punk rock are so worthwhile”

Edmonton’s Wunderbar held its last show on Halloween, 2015. A few weeks later, the venue’s owner Craig Martell joined the History of Punk to chat about local music, venues, sustainability, and the ethics of punk rock.

Blake Racket from the Anatomy Cats led the interview with Craig, while Brittany Rudyck picked some tunes and I tried to run the board.

The show originally aired on CJSR from 10-11AM MST on Monday 16 November 2015. Here it is:

And here’s the playlist!

1. Betrayers (Edmonton) – “Love Rat”
2. Hooded Fang (Toronto) – “Clap”
3. Gender Poutine (Edmonton) – “Mourning”
4. B.A. Johnston (Hamilton) – “Hobo 4 Life”
5. Spazz (Redwood City) – “Gary’s Free Time (There’s Lots Of It)”

Can you see Hooded Fang?

If you don’t have a microscope handy and can’t quite make out what this poster says, you should know two things: 1) carrots don’t help your eyesight, so don’t feel bad about not eating vegetables anymore. 2) Hooded Fang are coming back to Edmonton, and they’re one Toronto band you should keep on your music plate.

One of the first bands ever featured on this blog , they’ve been through Edmonton before, playing with groups like The Rural Alberta Advantage and Cuff the Duke. They’ve also been on some list that starts with the word Polaris.

Check them out when they hit the Wunderbar on Thursday night, June 21st. They’ll be playing with Parlovr and Goose Hut as part of the Pop Off Tour.

And if you turn into a pumpkin at night or aren’t old enough to vote, they’ll also be playing in Churchill Square as part of the Works Festival earlier in the day, at 5 o’clock in the afternoon.
